The 2017 Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Awards is awarded to Costanza Rodda for the poster entitled:
Atmospheric-like rotating annulus experiment: gravity wave emission from baroclinic jet (Rodda, C.; Borcia, I.; Harlander, U.)

Measuring inertia gravity waves spontaneously emitted from the baroclinic wave jet, in a laboratory experiment, is particularly challenging. My name is Costanza Rodda and I am a second year PhD student at the Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) Cottbus – Senftenberg. I am working with a differentially heated rotating annulus laboratory experiment especially designed to study the inertia gravity waves radiation from jet streams.
My poster shows the work done within the DFG founded research project “Multiscale Dynamics of Gravity Waves” (MSGWaves), in which a direct comparison between numerical simulations (performed at the Goethe University in Frankfurt) and the laboratory experiment is presented. Both data show gravity wave packets generated in the jet exit region.
